We returned to kenya after many years and for the first time with our two children (9 and 11). This was our first stop after leaving Niarobi and it was just wonderful. Sitting in the wonderful bath in the upstream cottage watching the Elephant grazing across the river was bliss. Lovely views, relaxing and secluded and great service from all the staff. We would love to come back again with all the family. Sophie and Murray were very welcoming and their staff always on hand to help.
well worth a visit if you want to get away from it all and take in some lovely plains game and scenery.
